The Day of the Minnows!

In what was a complete mix of shock, dissapointment, and utter frustration for two neighboring nations of India and Pakistan, Bangladesh slided over Inda and Ireland completely destroyed Pakistan in the World Cup matches yesterday. Although India might not be paying as big a price as Pakistan is since they are done with their World Cup run and will be returning home soon, it is nevertheless a wake up call for the 1987 champions that no nation in this cup should be taken lightly, new or old!

India could manage only 199 at their innings end which was chased successfully by a young and enthusiastic Bangladesh. On the other side, Pakistan were even more disappointing a sight as they could only muster up 133 in an inning which had their wicket keeper, Kamran Akmal as their highest scorer of only 27! With his departure, hopes sank for millions back home and around the world. The bowlers tried their best to curtail the Irish but there is little you can do to win a match when your opposition needs less than 150 runs in a one day game these days.

The sensational win also came on St Patrick’s Day and put Ireland on course to qualify for the second round Super Eights on their debut appearance in the World Cup.

As for Pakistan, they World Cup dream has ended with a shameful defeat at the hands of a fairly new but exceptionally talented and charged up team.
